Words of Wearstler....


'When I sit down to create a space I just do what I feel. I don't look at trends; I just follow my heart. You have to be a bit of a free spirit to do this sort of work, you have to leave room for change because things never work out as you plan them. If you say 'I have to find this kind of chair' you'll never finish! You have to say 'I'm going to find stuff that's beautiful' and bring it all together like a painting.

Thanks to Domino magazine for bringing us these lovely words from Kelly Wearstler. This is what decorating is all about....

such an inspiring post!

sharing Tori Dixon-Whittle (A Day on Earth):

if we consider luxury and its offshoots to be the inessential but delightful things in life, then i would say that my luxuries - beautiful art and furniture, inspiring conversation and company, tantalising food and the like provide a richness of spirit which allows me to create and transcend the mundane..........

I love that quote as well. I can't wait to get the new Domino magazine now. Shannon, your Blog is too distracting...
So many beautiful posts I want to comment on! I'm meant to be doing my French studies!

Thanks Primrose,
How exciting that you're studying French - sigh - I used to be able to speak a bit of French - but it's been so long now I'm not sure that I'd know where to start.
